I hope you have enjoyed the awesome projects by my talented teammates thus far.  I love the Wizard of Oz and the Magic of Oz collection from Graphic 45.  I have said this many times, but the Scarecrow is my one of my favorite characters from the collection so you will see him quite a bit in my designs.

The design team created treat bags for Summer CHA using the Magic of Oz collection.  I can tell you all that you are certainly in for a treat this week as we unveil our bags. 

Trick or Treat!!!


I decided to use the Scarecrow as my focal image and surround him with other characters from the story.

First, I sprayed my paper bag and handles with Smooch Ink. I sprayed lightly so that you could see a hint of color from the paper bag.

I created a brick wall using a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. Used yellow acrylic paint on dark brown cardstock. Once dry, I added glossy accents to each brick. The collection has wonderful images which I detail cut to create custom embellishments.



Paper: Magic of Oz (Graphic 45)
Ink: Distress Ink (Ranger)
Embellishments: Stickles (Ranger), Metal Flower (Graphic 45), Stencil (The Crafter’s Workshop), Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), Paint (Making Memories), Glossy Accents (Ranger), Brad (Craft Supply)
Adhesives: ATG 700 (Scotch), Foam Squares (Ranger). Scor-Tape (Scor-Pal), 450 Quick Dry (Helmar’s)

Thinking of You - Card

Here is the coordinating card to match my bag.  Many of you have seen it before, but it's fun to bring him back out again.










Project Title: Thinking of You
Paper: The Magic of Oz (Graphic 45), Cardstock (Bo Bunny)
Ink: Distress Ink (Ranger)
Embellishments: Pearl Pen (Viva Decor), Stickles (Ranger), Ribbon (May Arts), Card Template (Lets Party Hearty), Chipboard (Graphic 45), Glossy Accents (Ranger)
